We’re pretty lucky with the fact that Brooklyn pizza is some of the best you’ll come across just about anywhere. There’s also plenty of great shops in Manhattan and the other boroughs.
We also like going on trips to Connecticut, Philadelphia and (to a lesser extent) New Jersey in search of great pizza.
This past Monday, a new shop opened in Brooklyn called F & F Pizzeria.
The place was opened by the duo known as “The Franks”. (We love their restaurants Frankie’s 457 Spuntino and Prime Meats which closed a little less than a year back.)
I found out that F & F Pizzeria might be opening when world pizza consultant Anthony Falco tipped me off.
According to their website, The Franks, “serve pizza developed in collaboration with legendary bakers Chris Bianco and Chad Robertson,” so it was expected that the pizza would be great.
We headed over to the pizzeria, housed in what used to be a garage, happy to see that the shop was indeed open.Here’s the oven where the magic happens.On the counter, some Frankies Spuntino branded items were on display.For now, the menu was pretty simple. Three different pizzas (regular slice, tomato slice and Sicilian slice) and a couple of drinks were available for September 30.Ordering was pretty simple. We decided to order one slice of each!I couldn’t wait to dig in but first I had to take a photo with this delicious- looking pizza!
Here’s a review of each slice from the new F & F Pizzeria.
The slice was very thin with a bit of crunch and it had no floppiness whatsoever. Besides the delicious crust, the most noticeable ingredient on the pizza was the excellent sauce. The cheese was very good and added a bit of flavor to balance the slice out.The only minor issue with the slice were a few well done spots. I’d attribute this to it being F & F’s first day. I’d only expect the pizza to get even better over time.
The tomato slice at F & F didn’t disappoint. It was the same great crust although it was a little floppy at the front. (We ate this slice second and it was barely warm by the time we tried it).
Regardless, this was a great slice. The sauce was even more noticeable, maybe even a drop sweet. If you get this slice, I recommend adding a bit of parm from the shaker by the counter. It will add a bit of saltiness which we felt made the slice even better.
Sicilian Slice: $6I only had one complaint about the Sicilian slice, the price. At $6, this is a very expensive slice of pizza!
When I picked up the slice, it felt heavy but when we bit in, there was an airy lightness to this incredible piece of pizza.Here’s a closer look at the middle of the crust.
The sourdough crust is definitely the star here. We all loved how the slice was squishy when you bit in while also being crunchy.Otherwise, much like the other slices, we loved how saucy this slice was. Kim and I found that the cheese wasn’t so noticeable but we did add a drop of parm for a little more flavor.
We’re looking forward to heading back to F & F Pizzeria very soon. The slices were all delicious so I’m glad that we tried all three which were available. (Since visiting, I saw that a pepperoni slice is now available.)
I’m not usually a big Sicilian fan but the amazing version offered at F & F was our unanimous favorite slice. Again, the only issue is that it is pricey.
F & F Pizzeria is a great new addition to the Brooklyn pizza scene.
I’d say go there now, you won’t be disappointed!
F & F Pizzeria is located at 459 Court Street in Brooklyn, New York.
